What is student loan repayment? post by /u/spaceman7
A post by Spaceman7 about student loan payments: Here’s a quick refresher: If you have student loan debts, you’re in trouble.
You owe more than your income or expenses.
And you’re making monthly payments that can add up.
In fact, your monthly payments could end up costing you more than the amount of money you owe.
For some, the difference is so great that they’ve had to pay off their student loans as if they were new money.
Many student loan borrowers have struggled to get the full amount they owe from their bank, credit cards or even their employers.
So when the student loan interest rate on your student loan reaches the highest in more than five years, the debt gets worse.
“If you can’t make your payments, you don’t get your money back,” said student loan attorney Jennifer Zuckerman.
If your bank is not processing your student loans, you can still make your monthly payment.
But that won’t happen if you’re at a default.
Here are some things to keep in mind if you have any outstanding student loans.
Student loan payments are calculated based on your income.
The amount you owe depends on how much income you have, your credit history and your current loan balance.
Your lender can’t determine your actual monthly payments.
If your loan balance is less than the balance you owe, you may not be able to get a partial payment.
If you owe more, your loan may not cover your payments.
When you default on your loan, you lose any protections that come with being at a “default” and a “debt free” status.
Some of your loan repayments may be considered “interest on principal” (IPO) and some may be “interest payments” (IPP).
IPO and IPP are calculated by your lender, which in turn is based on how many interest rate periods you’re paying, according to the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta.
Payment made during a default period may not qualify for interest.
The Federal Reserve also doesn’t determine the total amount you’re owed.
You’ll need to figure out what that amount is by contacting your lender.
It’s important to understand that there is no such thing as a debt free status.
In fact, you could have to pay more than you owe in interest if your loan is considered to be a “credit card” debt.
A credit card debt is a type of loan you owe to a financial institution for the purchase of goods or services.
Most lenders are also using interest rate changes as a way to calculate a student loan payment.
When you default, your payment may not get paid at all.
